GlamGlow ThirstyMud Product Review


Got thirsty skin? Does GlamGlow live up to its promise of super hydration in 10-20 minutes? This article contains written and video review…

A few weeks ago, I was introduced to the much raved about mud mask brand, GlamGlow. GlamGlow, Sephora’s #1 seller of quick-fix skincare products currently sold in 56 countries, has recently launched another innovative product called the ThirstyMud. Sounds cool? Well, let’s see.

It is important for our skin to stay hydrated, especially once you reach my age of 30+. As we age, the skin tends to be more prone to dry skin; leading to premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles and eventually creases (no!). When the skin doesn’t have sufficient hydration, it becomes prone to irritation, itchiness and other diseases as it lacks the moisture barrier to protect itself from outside elements. Hydration is important in maintaining healthy and youthful skin.

But we all are too busy or lazy sometimes, aren’t we? We want fast solutions, immediate results or quick fixes. I do try to stick to my daily routine of day and night skincare. I haven’t even gone for a facial in years! I admit that work and family responsibilities come first so if there is actually a product that can provide instant results, I’m just soooo excited to try! If you could have magnificent skin in 20 minutes, without going to the spa or facial salon, wouldn’t it be worth a try?

I’m in love with this matte blue box, combined with silver accents on some texts and borders. It just feels and looks so elegant, like a true star product. When you lift the top cover, you’ll be welcomed by a ‘HELLO SEXY’ greeting, making you feel beautiful and gorgeous as you are. I love the motivation of this message. I agree that everyone is sexy in his or her own way.

The box contains a product brochure and information leaflet. The blue and silver jar sits like a queen on inner card tray, with silver text and star accents. Isn’t that really sexy?

The jar cover has a silver star on top, making it look even more ‘Hollywood-ish’. Removing the cover, you’ll see an extra white cap to prevent spills, especially when it’s travelling with you.

The mud mask itself is of a light brown color, oozing with sweet coconut aroma. Try this on your skin and you’d want to lick it. It smells really delicious.


GlamGlow ThirstyMud contains the following potent ingredients for advanced hydration:
DewDration 2% - provides long-term hydration with a powerful trio of liquid acids designed to provide the most significant hydration and barrier actives; provides the deepest skin penetration for an instant dewy, youthful result.
HydraPack 7% - provides medium-term hydration with an innovative creation of specialized hydration actives to refresh and nourish depleted skin. It leaves the skin with an instant silky, soft and supple feel.

GreenEnergy 3% - provides short-term hydration with a combination of powerful natural ingredients for immediate skin conditioning. It leaves the skin smooth and energized.
Teaoxi Ground Olive Leaf – patented active technology for instant super sexy skin.



Another thing I love about GlamGlow ThirstyMud is that you can use it while in-flight. Ever noticed that your skin tends to be dull and dry while travelling? The ThirstyMud can be your flight companion. You simply apply it before or even during the flight, rest and chill, then wipe it off upon landing or just leave it on.


How to use ThirstyMud:
  • Cleanse your face
  • Apply an even layer of ThirstyMud all over your face, neck and decollete

For DAY USE
  • Leave it on for 10-20 minutes
  • Wipe it off with tissue and massage the remaining product into skin OR
  • Wash it off with water

For NIGHT USE
  • Leave on to infuse the skin with moisture and wake up with extremely hydrated skin

For IN-FLIGHT USE
  • Apply at the beginning of the flight and leave on for flight or travel duration

So this is how ThirstyMud looked on my face…then I chilled and relaxed for 20 minutes. Maybe lie down on the bed or start drafting a blog article…

My bare face after ThirstyMud. No makeup, no moisturizer, no editing.
I washed it off with water, as I’m more comfortable with this method. And OMG, I love how my skin feels! Really smooth, silky and supple. Almost feels like baby skin! And this was only my first time use.

SO HOW WAS IT?

GlamGlow ThirstyMud did live up to its promise of instant hydration and even more. It’s amazing. The price might seem a bit high for some but you can compare it with the time and convenience of having facial spa results at the comfort of your home or flight instead of spending time and money at a real spa. Of course, you can still do both and make GlamGlow ThirstyMud a complementary product to your facial routine.

I’m already excited to continue using ThirstyMud as part of my weekly routine. This can be used 2-3 times a week or as needed (if you have an event, wedding or important function to attend). I’d also try leaving it overnight and see the difference it can do to my skin.

And don’t forget, you can use this on your partner, boyfriend or husband, too!

I’ve also tested GLAMGLOW YouthMud. Stay tuned for my article and video review!
